Our Data Base and candidates

Powerhouse Appointments has an active data base of qualified professionals. This data base of candidates is being added to and removed from daily.

Our recent demographics reflect 1850 candidates of which 36% are PDI candidates.
In addition, the Powerhouse team has developed a meaningful network of quality candidates (locally and in Africa).

This network has been established over 25 years of collective experience in the recruitment industry.

Advertising in its typical form is not attracting the best candidates in the market place.

We are regularly having to penetrate our network and “head hunt”/”approach” the best candidates to meet our clients specific recruitment needs.

In addition, our in- house staff offer a range of specialist skills that cover Accounting, Legal, Taxation, Risk management, Psychology, Engineering and Project Management which enables us to call on additional network and so better meet the requirements of the job specification.

Why our candidates use us:

Most of our candidates come to us through referrals, either based on our professional reputation in the market place or the successful placement of one of their colleagues.

Our success is based on:

  • A face to face interview – we aim to build a relationship with you!
  • CV review and recommendations for change.
  • An in-depth assessment where we profile an appropriate opportunity, look at short term and long term career goals, understand your best cultural fit and discuss future studies based on career aspirations.
  • Interview preparation.
  • Career mapping and coaching.
  • Current salary surveys.

Our approach is consultative and personal. We aim to build a long term relationship with our candidates who will become our future clients.
